Have elevated liver enzymes. How to speed up recovery?

My daughter is in her senior year of college and was diagnosed with mono in December. She just had her 2nd blood test this week which indicates that she still has elevated liver enzymes . She is a runner, eats a very healthy diet with lots of organic products, prepares all her own foods, drinks no alcohol, has cut down on her physical activity (very difficult for her) and resting as much as possible. The doctor did not want to do another blood test on her but she wanted feedback as to if her liver function was going back to normal and it appears that the values are still elevated. She has been accepted and will start medical school next year so she is a highly intelligent individual and is trying to figure out what to do to expedite recovery and insure that she doesn t cause further damage. Do you have any suggestions on resources for her since she is unable to get helpful feedback from her doctor? She is on her college track team and wants to continue to train since she only has a few more months till school ends but wants to make sure she doesn t do anything that would hurt her body.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This is simple. When diagnosed with mono people should rest for at least 6-8 months and she should do it too. There is a reason why this is recommended. Every infection which damage liver is treated by resting because then liver doesnt need to produce all these proteins and can heal spontanuesly.
Mono attacks liver too and she should check liver tests every month till normal range of it. There is no other way to avoid complication of mono infection.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
